Police benefit golf event today

Two Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers killed in the line of duty will be remembered today in the 19th annual Burnette-Nobles Golf Tournament.

The event is being played at Skybrook Golf Club in Huntersville, and it is a fund raising effort for the CMPD’s Hope Foundation. That agency provides support for CMPD employees and their families who are in need.

The tournament is named for CMPD officers John Burnette and Andy Nobles. They were shot and killed Oct. 5, 1993, after answering a call about a stolen car in the Boulevard Homes area of west Charlotte.
